The IBS International of the ICFAI group is offering two international degrees from two different universities abroad in the same time period at the cost of one programme

When recession is hitting the pocket hard and students dropping their plans to study abroad, here comes a double bonanza – two international degrees from two different universities abroad in the same time period at the cost of one programme.

The IBS International of the ICFAI group has come with an innovative concept of a two-year Global MBA Programme for Global Management aspirants in the country.

Campuses

The course would be offered at four IBS campuses in Adelaide in Australia; Luton near London in the United Kingdom; Neuchatel near Geneva in Switzerland and Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates. The candidate can also study another degree during the same period in the participating universities - University of Southern Australia, University of Bredfordshire (Luton), University of Neuchatel and University of Wollongong in Dubai.

K.V.Iyer, Head, Icfai International Division says that Blue chip companies need to employ people with a deep understanding of different world markets to compete with the glowing competitors. “This programme will fulfil those needs,” he says. Since thousands of Indian students opt for an MBA from a foreign university this programme helps them obtain an International MBA in addition to a second degree given by the foreign university.

He reminds that Indian companies too are now venturing abroad and emerging Indian multinationals too need “multinational” employees. In such scenario, this dual degree programme helps candidates tremendously as they get global management exposure through international corporate internship and global placements. The IBS International also offers a one year Global Executive MBA programme.

Admission process

For admission candidates need to appear for IELTS or TOEFL. Candidates with IBSAT, GMAT, CAT and XAT scores can appear for interviews during February 26 to 28. All those who don’t have these scores must appear for a selection test IMCAT to be held on March 15. Interviews for them would be conducted between April 10 and 12. Further details can be obtained on 040-23430289.
